'Change My Mind' Guest Says Cisgender Men Shouldn’t Have an Opinion About Female Sports
There are several reasons why someone shouldn’t have an opinion about a topic. If one has absolutely no knowledge of the topic, it’s probably best they don’t speak on it until they become informed. If one’s opinion is a long-debunked position, i.e. the world is flat, it’s probably best to just sit that conversation out for a moment. But one’s sex is not a reason to not have an opinion.
But that’s just my opinion. You can take it or leave it. This kid would have definitely left it because he went in the complete opposite direction.
Should Men Even Care About Trans People Competing in Women's Sports? | Louder With Crowderwww.youtube.com
“I cannot say. I’m not a female. I’m not transgender. I’m not in these sports.”
I can’t say I agree with this young man. Okay, I can say I disagree with the premise that men, especially men who identify as men, should not have an opinion on female sports simply because they aren’t the ones competing in them. But aside from that, he was rather noncommittal with everything that it would be hard to disagree with much else.
Look, he seems like a nice kid. I’m sure he’ll do just fine in college and eventually drive his purple truck to whatever job he ends up with later (that job being contingent on whatever degree he’s pursuing… Hopefully, for his sake, something in STEM). But we have a real issue now, and that issue requires action to be taken now.
His noncommittal attitude notwithstanding, people must make up their minds about what is more important: the feelings of biological males who identify as women and rob biological females of accolades and opportunities or the women from whom those men are stealing those benefits.
I know where I stand, even though I’m a cisgender man. I’m sure I can guess where most of our readers stand. We need others to come forward to say where they stand.
